DIY Holga Lenshoods by Mandi

2

Not all lens flares are welcome additions to our photos. To avoid these unsightly errors, you need to introduce some shade in your life!

I love the occasional lens flare now and then, but having it on every single one of your photos is no bueno. The solution to this problem is by adding a lens hood to shield away stray light. Just as long as you don’t aim the lens straight at the light source, you shouldn’t have a problem with flares.

That’s great and all, but where can I get a lens hood you ask? You create one of course! Don’t settle for drab and ordinary ones though. Mandi made four designs of lens hoods for the Holga – one to suit each of your moods! Just print these PDFs on sturdy paper and follow the instructions.

    Ever since light painting was invented, it inspired artists from all around the globe to magical creations that capture hidden movements and reinvent the world we live in.

Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!
